Sprinter or a distance runner, a good racing shoe can give you an edge over your competition. Racing spikes are ultra-lightweight and give you a "grip" on the track while helping you get up on your toes. You make it from the starting line to the finish line with the most minimal shoe possible - sometimes shaving valuable seconds off your time. But is lighter always better? That depends on the individual athlete and the distance you're running. Some athletes actually run slower if they use a shoe that is too minimal. At GFR we can help you find the correct competition shoe for you
